Operation, analysis, and design of signalized intersections : a module for the introductory course in transportation engineering / Michael Kyte, Maria Tribelhorn.

By: Kyte, Michael.
Contributor(s): Tribelhorn, Maria.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: [s.l.] : [s.n.], 2014Description: XII, 130 p. : col. il. ; 28 cm.ISBN: 9781500204365; 1500204366.Subject(s): VÍAS -- DISEÑO Y CONSTRUCCIÓN -- ENSEÑANZA | INGENIERÍA DE TRAFICO | SEÑALES DE TRANSITODDC classification: 629.04
Contents:
Overview of intersection operation and control -- Representing traffic flow at a signalized intersection -- Sequencing and controlling movements -- Yellow and red clearance intervals -- Capacity -- Sufficiency of capacity -- Delay of level of service -- Cycle length and split times -- Signal timing -- Glossary -- Problems and exercises -- References -- Index.
Summary: Before they begin their university studies, most students have experience with traffic signals, as drivers, pedestrians and bicycle riders. One of the tasks of the introductory course in transportation engineering is to portray the traffic signal control system in a way that connects with these experiences. The challenge is to reveal the system in a simple enough way to allow the student “in the door,” but to include enough complexity so that this process of learning about signalized intersections is both challenging and rewarding.
